Hello, Classic Movie Lovers!
I am Nikki G., contributing writer to True Classics and a fellow lover of classic films. I grew up watching classic films, particularly Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals, John Wayne Westerns, and all things Disney, many of which are still very dear to my heart. To quote Fauna from Sleeping Beauty, “I just love happy endings,” so I usually prefer films with hope, love, and a lot of laughs.
I don’t think I could list a Top 10 list of all-time favorite films, but here are a few of my favorite things:
- Leading Men: Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Howard Keel, Spencer Tracy, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Yul Brynner
